cisco shuts down the flip camcorder
Bye, Flip. We'll Miss You
this just boggles my mind. while i don't think the flip is the best pocket camcorder (i like the zi8 more), i do think the flip is the leader in the market. why would you cut off your product line while it's at the top?
and i see people saying phones can do the same thing as a flip, well i'm not going to go backpacking and dangle my phone over a raging river that i just hiked past at a mountain top. sometimes a dedicated device is better, and a lot of those times a pocket camcorder is a good thing.

Yea I've been quite pleased with my UltraHD besides its charging issues (often stops because it's "too hot" and won't resume for several hours). Doesn't matter if I just use AA's in it, or if I'm just patient enough to wait for it to actually charge. Takes quite good video for a pocket camcorder IMO, compact, and feels sturdy enough that I'm not afraid to take it around with me.

*mental note* buy flip HD at futureshop this week.
I've been thinking of buying one for a while now. I guess if I want one now would be the time to get one lol

Cisco got really really drunk one night and decided to get in on this crazy new internet video YouTube business.
As of this week Cisco sobered up and remembered it's a networking company and had more important things to do, like make commercials involving extremely optimistic videoconferencing performance and Ellen Page.

mmm ellen page...
i like the flip, but i dont like the fact that it only has a 2x zoom on it (which i believe is digital). plus the sony bloggie touch is in the same price range but is much nicer.

I never understood the concept.
If I wanted a pocket digital video recorder with high resolution and hours and hours worth of storage...I'd get a smartphone/iTouch/soon-to-be-any-ipod. Oh wait, already got one.

TLDR: You should try reading the article and some of the posts above you, then you could see why someone might want these.
As someone with a Sony Bloggie Touch, I say that there were better recorders (though I admit, not as easy to upload, which is what Flips were good at).
